We're all about saving you your hard-earned money so this week's refurbs are all about keeping it low price. That's why nothing in this week's bag o' deals goes any higher than just under $1K. You can get quite a few awesome Macs for under a grand and they'll last you years and years, so consider these deals extra great. And if you had more to spend in your budget, but you were wise enough to come here first, then check out what you can do with some of your other coin.
We're going to keep things fresh and new this time around with Apple hardware only from 2014. If you want newish but don't have quite enough money to get the brand-new machine of your dreams, then these lightly refurbished Macs will give you more power for your dollar. And if you want to spend some of your savings from your Mac on accessories like a phone case or an external hard drive, then we've got you covered there too.
Every so often, our deal-diggers turn away from desktops and laptops to focus on something almost as powerful but far more portable: iPad and iPad mini. If you have a tablet need and not a lot of cash, there are plenty of options this week; we can take you all the way back to the second generation for some serious discounts. Want to load up an iPad with movies for long trips? We've got your ticket. Plus: Cords, cases, styluses, and more in this week's deal-o-rama!
Last week's deals were a bit more high end as we looked at all the 2.X+GHz models that packed a wallop on the processor end of things for discounted prices. This week, we get back to the lower prices and have all our refurb model Macs that you can grab for under a grand. So if you have a Mac yearning but have a budget that's tight, this week's for you!
We're gonna leave behind the MacBook Air line and the lower powered 1.4GHz processors and focus on just the more powerful models in the world of refurbed Macs. This week, we're all about speed and power and just crushing it. So let's get right into these big beautiful Macs — and we'll see what kind of a hook up we can give you in the accessory category too.
We're mixing it up a little here by leaving the MacBook Airs out of this week's Deal Roundup. There are still plenty of those models on tap, but we wanted to give a little shout out to the MacBook Pro, the souped up bigger brother to the lighter than air Apple laptops. And so, in honor of our beloved machine that we're currently writing this article on, we present some great Pros. Plus some interesting accessories that make things a bit more fun for you.
Not only did the Mac Mini make it back in our line up last week, but it continues to be here and in a variety of configurations. These little marvels are super popular in the refurb market and we've got plenty more that'll fit the bill for just about any budget. Plus we've got some cases and some Bluetooth accessories that'll go easy on your wallet.
Well 2015 is fully upon us now and some old favorites are back in the refurb shop, plus an old favorite all spiffed up in its newest incarnation, but you've got to move quick. We've got nothing in the deals column this week that's any older than 2014, so these are some of the newest used machines you can get your hands on and they're all Apple checked, cleaned, and approved, so let's get going.
So, the Apple refurb market is still recovering from holiday shoppers, so we thought we'd switch things up a little this week, and instead of finding you the newest models on the market, we thought we'd dip back into the older models where the savings really start to get out there. So if you're looking for a secondary machine or money's particularly tight but need is particularly high, we've got some youngish models that still have what it takes.
Things are getting a bit thin on the ground at Apple's refurb store as the holiday season marches on. That favorite, the Mac mini, always the first off the shelves is out of stock, the only iPads are the pricier models with cellular capabilities, iPod touches only start at the 32GB level. Suffice to say, people are buying Apple this season. But let's see what goodies we can still find under the tree, shall we?
